Pick Up a Day of Action Kit for Your Child
United Way Manitowoc County’s Annual Day of Action was a success! On Friday, June 18, volunteers from across the community came together to make a difference right here in Manitowoc County. Volunteers assembled 400 diversity, equity and inclusion kits for children in our community and distributed hundreds of door hangers featuring information about two of our critical resources – 211 and SingleCare – in both Manitowoc and Two Rivers. Thank you to all of our volunteers who donated their time this year! Additionally, thank you to our sponsors – NextEra Energy and Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry – for making this event possible!
United Way will be distributing our 400 diversity, equity and inclusion kits at the Downtown Manitowoc Farmers' Market on Saturday, July 10 from 8 am to 1 pm or supplies run out. These kits cover a variety of topics including kindness, our differences and similarities, disabilities, where skin tone comes from, and more. They are perfect for young, preschool to elementary school aged children, and include a variety of activities, stories, and goodies. We hope you can stop by the United Way booth at the market to pick one of these no cost kits up for the child in your life!
Every day, we LIVE UNITED for PRIDE and celebrate the LGBTQA+ individuals in our community.
Visit a Born Learning Trail
Plan a stop to one of our three Born Learning Trails this summer! These trails are a series of 10 interactive signs that offer fun, active learning activities for young children and their families.
United Way’s Born Learning Trails are located at Oswald Park in St. Nazianz, Washington Park in Two Rivers, and the Lincoln Park Zoo in Manitowoc. The United Way team recently restocked the Free Little Libraries at our St. Nazianz and Manitowoc Born Learning Trails with a variety of new books for children of all ages.
In an ever-changing world, United Way Manitowoc County's commitment remains the same - to build strong, sustainable, healthy and safe communities for all.
